    recently someone (can't remember who) ask me about hooking up a sidecar to a r1200c. When I think of who it was, I will send him your way.

    Nice rig!

    One of the very first showings of the then new R1200C by BMW was with a sidecar rig. It was painted a maroon color. Wish I had a picture of it.

    1936 R12 with a 1937 Juwel Sidecar

    Here is my 1936 R12 with a period Juwel German sidecar.
    Not too fast, but turns heads when I ride it.

    R75/2 & Steib s/c

    This is my conversion /2 with an R75/5 engine and gearbox. After I completed the bike and sidecar, I decided that it just did not have enough guts, so I put 1974 R90/6 cylinders, pistons and heads on it. I did a lot of other modifications also.
    The both the levers and left control is from a BMW R12, while the throttle is /5 with the lever perch cut off. Needless to say, the valve covers are custom also. The headlight bucket is /5. What used to be the spark retard lever on the R12 left control is now the choke. I also used R25/2 handlebar risers so everything would clear the Hoske tank.

    How about a 'tour' around that beauty? Or at least a shot revealing the other side!

    Here is another shot, of the other side. I can't figure out how to put more than one photo in the same post, so I'll just do a couple of posts.

    R75/2 & steib other side

    Here is another shot. I have a 450 watt alternator on the bike, and have a relay on the high beam so when I go to high beam, the Hella flame thrower auto driving light comes on, that is mounted on the side car frame. I changed the wiring to the sidecar, so the Cobra handle is the now the rig's right side directional.
    The left directional in front is a /5 and the rear in in the Enduro bag.
    Both enduro bags function as tail lights, and there is an Eber brake and tail light on the back of the side car fender.
    Needless to say, the right hand Enduro bag had to be modified so it would fit over the rear side car attachment. I also have interior lights rigged up inside the nose of the side car, and in the trunk of the side car. Nothing worse at a rally at night, than trying to hold a flashlight in your teeth, while you rummage around in the hack, looking for something. I now have, (but not in this photo) A GPS mounted on the grab rail of the side car, and a helmet to helmet communication installed in the hack.
